Nominations for ARSC Awards for Excellence

Nominations for ARSC Awards for Excellence

You are invited to propose candidates for the 2001 Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC) Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research. Nominations may be made by anyone, whether or not a member of ARSC. Eligible publications include any printed workbook, monograph, article, liner notes first published during 2000. The work may be on any subject related to recorded sound. This includes histories, discographies, and recording artist biographies in any field of music, speech or technology, genre (classical, popular, rock, jazz, country, folk, spoken word, labels, phonographs, etc.), as well as modern techniques for the preservation or reproduction of older recordings. The work should deal primarily with historical periods, defined as at least ten years prior to publication (e.g., pre-1991), with the exception of works related to preservation and technology. In addition, a Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to an individual in recognition of his or her life's work in published recorded sound research.

The deadline for nominations is January 31, 2001. A list of past winners is available on the ARSC website at www.arsc-audio.org. The Awards Committee especially welcomes information concerning eligible foreign and small press publications that might otherwise be overlooked. Please forward the author, title, publisher, and publisher's address for each nominee to either of the ARSC Awards Co-Chairs:
